Blog: Olly WehringCoke and Pepsi - where are they not number one?

Olly Wehring | 11 June 2008

Back into London town again yesterday (10 June) to attend the British Soft Drinks Association's annual industry lunch. A most entertaining affair, made all the more pleasant by my table partners from AG Barr.

The UK-based company is the proud owner of the soft drink brand Irn Bru, which, I found out at lunch, sells a staggering 12 cans a second to the 6m Scots. Indeed, Scotland is one of only three soft drinks markets around the world in which neither Coca-Cola nor Pepsi holds the top brand, I discovered.

So, drinks folk, it's pub quiz time.

Can you name the other two?

First correct answer gets a can of Irn-Bru. Possibly.
